Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Traffic safety

Please take maximum care when walking children through the car park. It is essential to hold children's hands when crossing the road as children don't develop the ability to understand traffic correctly until they get older.

Driving on the school grounds and in the staff car park is not permitted.

There is a 40kph speed limit outside the school please drive within this limit.

Please respect the Drop off zone area in Gilmour Street and the bus zone in Barina Parkway. These areas are there to provide a safe entry point and exit point for all students.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.
